A former student at Cheltenham College, Ollie Thorley is one of the Academy's brightest young products.
A regular for the Gloucester U18 side, Thorley became the club's youngest first team try scorer, when he crossed against Ospreys in March 2015 in the LV Cup and he marked his debut in the Premiership with the game's only try against the Exeter Chiefs in April 2016.
He was part of the England U20s squad that won the Junior World Championship in June 2017.
Ollie was in fine form in 2017-18, with ten tries from 15 appearances, until sidelined by a shoulder injury but signed a new contract to remain at Gloucester Rugby.
2018-19 proved to be a memorable one for Thorley as he was called up to train with England, was named Premiership Player of the Month for December, was voted the club's Young Player of the Season, the RPA Player's Young Player of the Season and won Citizen Try of the Season at the Gallagher Premiership End of Season Awards.
Thorley won his first England cap against Italy in the 2020 Six Nations.
